Question about Samsung WB150F SMART Long Zoom WiFi 14 Megapixel Digital Camera - White

1 Answer

Camera will not switch on in operate mode.

Tried with 3 known fully charged batteries but "connecting to computer", briefly displays on screen, then only the LED flashes green, if operate or play switch is pressed. Fault was intermittent at first but now it is every switch on. It had to be a software/firmware fault, but a reset when the camera worked did not fix it! Fault appeared at low battery condition, but replacing with a charged battery does not fix it. Batteries are still recharged in the camera successfully .

Can you test the voltage of the charged batteries, often they will not hold full charge for several reasons, age, factory imperfection, over use, haven't been allowed to discharge fully before recharge, dirty battery contacts, if you can, try new non rechargeable batteries, often cameras get temperamental about batteries after some time, use a metal tarnish cleaner with a cue tip, on the contacts, or pure alcohol, if bad, use plastic scourer, cold batteries don't work well, warm them in your hands if cold.

My sansa fuze i plug it in to the computer and it doesn't recognize the device and i have tried all usb options on the device. What do i do it wont charge at all.????


Hello,

When the Fuze can be switched on:
1. slide the power on switch shortly upwards to put the player on
2. hold the power on switch upwards for 15-20 seconds
3. release the power switch
Next try to switch the player on and see if it reacts normally.
Switch the player off again and try charging again, making connection to a computer.

When charging still doesn't start, disconnect the player from the computer:
4. slide the power switch downwards into the lock position,
forcing MSC mode
5. connect the player to the computer for charging in MSC mode
for a about 3 hours.
6. while charging use the Sansa Firmware Updater to check for
updates. When not installed already download the Sansa Updater
and run this execute file.
Updates for the player can only be performed in MSC mode.
The updater only works when you're logged in to the computer having administrator's rights and running Windows operating system.

MSC mode means that the computer sees the player as a removable disk. When in MSC mode, always disconnect through the icon "safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen.


When the display of the player doesn't react at all after the reset and charging procedure, the battery of the player can:
a. be too far empty or
b. have a fast power loss.
The load of the power supply from the USB ports might be to weak to get the player charged.
When point a. is the case, an extra power adapter connected to a wall socket, providing more power, could help.
When the battery has had many loads it can be at its end of duty cycle. Then battery replacement will be required.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Well the first thing I would do is recommend you send your unit in for service as you may end up doing more harm then good. You can call and get free estimates on what this may cost. If you need any further assistance or help locating a service center let me know.

While you are trying to boot up, before the Windows logo comes up, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Then try to use the option "Last known good configuration". If that one does not work, try to go to the safe mode option

E10 and s45 same problem


the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

Camera turns on then shuts down


hi...ensure  that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears.  Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... 
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. 
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. 
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. 
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. 
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

IXUS 80 can you help...photos won't download.."COMMUNICATION ERROR"


This can be due to various reasons
1)The driver is corrupted: The camera's drivermay be corrupted. Uninstall the driver and any software and then connect the camera to the PC and then re-install the software.
OR
2)The USB cable might be faulty. Remove the memory card from the cam and try using a USB card reader(You can get one for 5$) and see if works. If it does may be then its time to buy a new USB cable for your cam.
3)Last but not least the cam's firware may been corrupted. Its pretty easy to flash the firmware so we can try it. Let me know if the above solutions worked or not so that we can try the firmware update

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75


Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.
